Fun and flirty, Yuna Yang’s Fall 2014 runway show took place the opening night of NYFW at the Alvin Alley Dance studio last Thursday. A mix of international prints and boyish cuts with feminine embellishments, we enjoyed the playful yet sophisticated looks. Classic pop filled the dance studio turned runway, as models sported funky braids with the line’s signature and playful pieces. Black lace was juxtaposed against bright, almost neon silks made the line unique, but still easily wearable. Beaded sweaters, on-trend midi dresses, and structural tops created a basis fort he collection. Funky garters and lined ciagrette-cut pants rounded out the collection.
Our favorite looks included a pleated midi skirt with alternating silk panels in a kaleidoscope of colors, as well as a classic blue shift dress with a sexy back. The lace button downs are going to be a great seasonal transition piece, and the bright colors evoke optimism for when the seasons change next year. We also loved how the designer embraced sneakers on the runway. That has been a trend that has taken on some momentum in recent seasons, and our feet are really excited about it! Fashionably embellished slip on sneakers created an easy, yet funky aesthetic when mixed with Yuna Yang’s girly looks.
The line, started in 2010, is inspired by Yuna's international travels. This inspiration was easily translated onto the runway, as her pieces seemed to have Asian and European influences, blended seamlessly into one piece. The international vibe has a young, fun and urban attitude we can see many bloggers and 20-something fashionistas sporting in the coming months. Check the Yuna Yang website for past collections and get excited for when the Fall 2014 release, it’s a winner!
